Testimonials

I have always found Airswift to be very responsive, helpful and knowledgeable. We have used Airswift specifically to facilitate contractor needs in countries where we have not had an entity or where we have had a need for specific contractor assistance that Airswift can provide.
Airswift have been extremely helpful to me and the Chamber Board in supporting Chamber activities and indeed have offered us great support with projects for our wider clientele. We hold the team at Airswift in high regard for their professionalism and diligence, but more importantly for the friendliness and willingness that they have shown towards us.
They successfully sourced, onboarded and managed a large workforce. Airswift's local knowledge and experience in the UAE market, combined with an intertwined cross-regional approach to project support, have been vital in ensuring the success of the project to date.
The person I dealt with was a stand out because they were extremely helpful and efficient in getting information so quickly. They have been very warm, gracious and professional.
